Huck to run in Big Apple

Posted By on Wed, Aug 2, 2006 at 1:31 PM

Gov. Mike Huckabee today held a press conference at the State Capitol with officials from the New York City Marathon to announce that he will be running in the Nov. 5 event. His race number is 110 -- the number of pounds he lost after he famously slimmed down.

In a press release, Huckabee said, "I've run in New York City many times and I've loved it, but the thought of crossing the finish line in Central Park with thousands of cheering spectators is something I'm excited to be a part of."
